I think the "bring a card for everyone in the class" rule has been in effect in most places in the country for a very long time.

I agree that a simple rule of "Bring a valentine for everyone or nobody" would solve any exclusion problems at the elementary level.

I thought the exclusion thing had been solved years ago by simply making it a rule that everyone had to bring a card for everyone else in the class.

Valentine's Day is only observed in elementary schools, pre-schools, and daycares.

In some of the earlier grades, when kids were learning to write, the teacher made the Valentines and assignment. A chance for kids to practice writing their letters. The sent a list home of all the kid's names. I remember breaking it down and we did like 3-4 a night until they were done.

Lol. My dd's MS/HS school has a deal where you can send $2 roses to your friends on VD (which can be sent anonymously), which results in some gratuitous girl drama. I don't know about the boys.
